Bosch Jaipur wins two National Safety Awards

The National Safety Award is biggest award of its kind in India. It honors a company’s commitment for achieving two things: an accident-free year and the lowest accident rate. On September 17, the Ministry of Labour and Employment honored this year’s winners in New Delhi. Pravin Saraf, Vice President Technical Head at the Bosch Jaipur location, accepted the prizes in both categories on behalf of the company.  

Shri Santosh Gangwar, India’s Minister of Labour and Employment, honoured achievements that companies realized in 2015. The National Safety Award thus indirectly acknowledges efforts that Bosch has been making in Jaipur since 2011. It was at this point that the location developed its vision in terms of safety: the aim was nothing less than to achieve an accident-free workplace.

Accident free for five years already

The Bosch “Zero accident Approach” in Jaipur began at the highest hierarchical level, and has been very effective from the start. Lessons learnt from 2 accidents in 2011/2012, JaP foremost focus was on Engineering control and behavioural aspect of employees. JaP middle management, associates and contract workmen were involved extensively in this approach. Just two years after the project was launched, the Bosch Jaipur location was accident free, and has been ever since. To firmly establish this high level of occupational safety in the long term, in 2016 those in charge of the initiative also began addressing the families of associates with the “Safety 360° drive” project.

With these activities, the Jaipur location made a major contribution for further reducing the “number of accidents per million hours worked” at Bosch in 2016. Today, the figure is 2.7 compared with 6.8 in 2007.
